Here we go, blog number one!

So at the moment things have been a bit hectic juggling the numerous assignments which I have due in over the next month, seeing me in the library and computer labs has been a regular occurrence, but slowly I’m making my way through them.  Also there has been serious practise for a group presentation which I’m doing next week; although nervous our group has put in lots of work to make sure it’s the best it can be, so fingers crossed all goes well. As well as University assignments I’ve also been working and have been in contact with various event organisations and charities to get myself some work experience and offer my help to the charities involved , my diary is my life saver to stop me forgetting everything!

But it hasn’t been all work and no play; I have been attempting to have a social life. I recently visited the Event Production Show 2012, this is a trade show aimed at the events industry at the Olympia in London. Whilst there I made sure to check out the exhibitor stands, watched some of the singers who performed and attended one of the seminars which the event had to offer. The seminar was about the trends and spends of the Olympic games and what affects its set to have on not only London but also the events industry. A discussion from a panel of industry experts which included representatives from various event related companies and also the commercial director for EC&O venues (they oversee the events at the Olympia where the show was and various other venues). The seminar gave me some interesting insight from the events perspective about the impacts the Olympics have had leading up to the games, currently and trends thought to be happening after the games. Whilst the seminar was happening I was frantically taking notes about everything they said as it was extremely relevant to my studies and also gave me many ideas for topics for my dissertation which I am giving loads of thought into at the moment!  I really enjoyed the show and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the events industry, another plus point its free to attend you just have to register.

Also something I was extremely excited about was going to see Snow Patrol at the O2!!! It was an amazing night and Snow Patrol definitely lived up to my expectations and were giving me the chills through most of the gig, and I was having to hold back the tears when they sung a beautiful duet with Lissie (who is amazing in her own right) of their song Set the Fire to the Third Bar and of course Chasing cars!! An amazing night!!!!
